    The truth is, he only has his meager pension. He can't afford to go anywhere else. He is even fortunate to get free food from his lover's family. That is why he learned to savor Filipino food even if he dispies Filipinos. 2 times he lost his love ones or shall we say love twice, he is booted out and he blames them because of their bad manners. This time around he is wiser. He never criticized his present lover's family anymore. he just agonize and makes his rants here in DI. He is afraid to face the truth coz he will be booted once again. Problem is he doesn't know how to handle the truth. If what he is saying is the truth, can he solve it by ranting it here in DI? He has no gutts to tell this people coz he doesn't know how to. He doesn't know how to care. Intelligent indeed.

    My question was not an attempt to insult you nor am I afraid of a serious debate.
    I read through your "articles" and found them a difficult read due to the lack of proper grammar and spelling. On chat forums it's less important but if you want people to take your writing seriously you should consider improving those areas.

    You should hear most foriegners complain about that sort of thing, I just think it amusing when people always visit at lunch or dinner time. lol

    One american guy went to visit his girl friend he had been romancing on the internet they arrange to meet in a Jolly Bee's. When he arrived he was greeted to the whole family all 43 or so of them. Get the drift, lol

    All ways welcome good advice. Please point me to the articles concerned, you do realize that I write using american english? The is another unfortunate things such as I am not only writing on this forum but many others. later I go back to check and edit something and find mistakes but can not edit them here. Perhaps I should write my articles for here in word and not direct.

    Thank you for pointing the problem out. It would seem however not to much problem for people working out whats been actually said as I have a hugh fan mail here on DI that means the articles are read and critism actually gives good proof, lol

    How I love forums its fun

    Everybody can check on your postings that you DID EDIT on your postings several times. So don't lie again.
    Klick on the small button at the right side of each of your postings.
    Normally the button is green, but for you a RED button has been shown.
    Put the cursor on that button and you will be able to read how people love you at this forum.
    I will help you: This is not the right place for you.
    You're too stupid to learn anymore, it seems.

    I'll have to guess at your intent but I'm willing to give it a go. I'll use "American English" as well.

    I always welcome good advice. Please point me to the articles concerned. Do you realize I write using American English? Unfortunately, I'm not only writing on this forum but many others as well. I return later to check my posts for mistakes but I'm not able to edit them. Perhaps I should write my articles for this forum in Word rather than posting directly.
    Thank you for pointing out the problem. It would seem, however, not too much trouble for people to work out what's being said as I have a large volume of fan mail here on DI. All the criticism is proof the articles are being read. lol
    How I love forums. It's fun.

    Funny....

    I spend daily on my country which like what you said helps the economy. By the way I eat out daily at restaurants, so I pay more on evat. I travel a lot within the Philippines every so often, therefore I contribute to the income derived from tourists. I work in this country so I pay hundreds of thousands of pesos annually on income taxes. My work involves sales presentation to bring foreign investors in, therefore generating more jobs. My family owns a business which employs over 40 heads therefore giving jobs and of course contributing more to taxes. I spend for the education and health care of my nieces and nephews (from the extended family).

    However, I do not find it as helping. Those are my duties.

    So back to your question, how do I help?

    1. I participate in the annual coastal clean up. My diving group has created several artificial reefs to help save our seas.
    2. I particpate in the annual tree planting projects.
    3. I do voluntary work to teach English and basic computer to street children/teenagers.
    4. I have participated in several house building projects of Gawad Kalinga.
    5. I sponsor a Filipino child in world vision.
    6. I send in monthly donations to Bantay Bata 163.

    Sad to say, I am not rich. I am just a middle class Filipino and that is the extent of how I can help. But as you seem to project that you are RICH, I think you can do more than that. This country already has a lot of whiners. For an old FART. whining doesn't suit you.

    Being new here Babel and having lived in worst condition back where I work in Iraq, I can understand the problem your having living in a third world country in a culture that is completely different. I can not understand why your under attack and if this is by Filipino members here these are not the normal friendly people I know and love.

    I truthly would not want to settle down and retire here and find the cooler weather in France is more to my personal taste. I hope you continual stay here and enjoy your hell and paradise. The hell to me is its clammy and sweaty here but I am going to find a nice room with shower room, nice toilet and aircon today.

    Thanks for sharing information it is very useful to new comers to the Philippines
